RE: stupid OTL question


Actually, Transcendent is the lowest price, but those generally start out as kits so either DIY or get lucky and find a competent builder. Output power tends to be on the low side.

If you need more power, a good value (IMHO) is a used Atma-Sphere M50/M60 (any version), but you need to find one that is maintained (or at least has power supply caps that are not too old). I am still running a beautiful gold face original pair of M50s (with the original transformers!) with only upgraded coupling caps, and I would not trade those for anything. That pair has been going so long that some of the front panel lights are almost faded out!

Speaker choice will be an issue, but you get a lot more flexibility with a pair of zero autoformers.
